WASHINGTON, D.C. SEPTEMBER 5, 2017 -- Tonight, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Financial Stability Oversight Council Insurance Member Continuity Act, H.R. 3110. This bill will allow the FSOC independent insurance expert to remain on the Council after the end of his or her term, if a successor has not yet been named. AIA's Wes McClelland, vice president for federal affairs, issued the following statement in response to the news:

“We applaud the House’s passage of this bill because it ensures that an individual with expert knowledge of insurance and policyholder issues will maintain a seat at the FSOC table, regardless of the political changes in Washington. We thank Mr. Woodall for his continued leadership and look forward to the Senate continuing the process and sending a bill to the President's desk."
